The Dithyrambs have been founded in 1989 in the formation bass, guitar/vocals, keyboard, drums. The early influences, which are still significant to the band down to the present day, primarily came from the psychedelic era, the most energetic Rock of the 60'/70' and the at the time popular Trash Metal.
Theirs songs are self-composed; written by Andrea Pacini and arranged by the band in a collaborative effort.
The two band members of the initial formation are Andrea Pacini (guitar/vocals) and Francesco Biagianti (drums). The remaining line-up was subject to miscellaneous changes, therefore we leave it at a short, chronological abstract:

Exit of the first keyboard player - line-up in a threesome - entry of a new keyboard player - exit of the new keyboard player - line-up in a threesome - entry of a second guitar player - exit of the second guitar player - line-up in a threesome - exit of the bass player - looking for a new practice space - entry of a new bass and a new second guitar player - exit of both - entry of a new bass player - line-up in a threesome - exit of the new bass player - entry of the final bass player Daniele Mencarelli - line-up in a threesome.
In parallel with the personel changes the band had to strive against impacts that did not depend on the musician`s goodwill (notice of practice space and lots of other unpleasant events of all kinds), too. To the supporters`s cost several overlong breaks of the otherwise stage-obsessed band were the consequence.

After the first demos, realised in the time between 1989 and 1993, started spreading, which got a fantastic press in Italy (H/M, this magazine sadly no longer exists), in Germany (Iron Pages, Underground Empire) and in numerous fanzines, and thanks to their attendance at several festivals and contests (Rock Contest, Anagrumba), the band managed to pass the region of their hometown Montepupulciano early on and gave umpteen concerts in Central Italy, such as Exaffa Club Perugia, Topsy Pub Livorno, youth center Pistoia, youth center Florenz "La Jungla", Regional Party of Unity at Camp Bisenzio Firenze, Provincial Party of Unity Siena, youth center Fuori Binario Pesaro, concert in the University of Urbino, youth center Intifada of Empoli and so on ...

Due to the permanent changes of the line-up and the long breaks, the band unfortunatly lost those important contacts with organizers, that had taken them years to get. But the main reason that keept them away from festivals and taverns was the musical trend in Italy. In those days music was dominated by genres like Etno, Folk, Reggae and Ska. The Dithyrambs play anything but that and they don`t want their taste to be bent over: Aggressive Rock, sung in English language and still being soaked with psychedelic traits.

The entry of Daniele Mencarelli in the fall of 2000 and finally an own practice studio led to the desiderated stability after all. In summer of 2001 the in-house production of their first (promotion) CD "Dithyrambs 2001" and ongoing concerts on a regular basis followed.
Their second CD "Free To Be Filthy" was released self-distributed in januar 2007. The afresh mixed and afresh mastered version of "Free To Be Filthy" is their first release on a label (release date 15 June 2007). A small tour through Middle Europe is planned for autumn 2007, a new edition of a rework of their first CD "Dithyrambs 2001" for the end of the year.
These days the band is working on new songs. Unfortunatly we`ll have to wait for that album untill next year.
